Marian University has named William Mirola interim dean of the university’s newly-formed College of Arts and Sciences. The previously separate School of Liberal Arts and the School of the Mathematics and Sciences were merged at the beginning of the academic year to form the new College of Arts and Sciences. He will provide leadership and vision to the College of Arts and Sciences and promote excellent teaching and learning. Mirola has been at the university since he received his Ph.D. in sociology from Indiana University. He served as the chair of the Department of History and Social Science from 2002-09 and again from 2014-16. In 2009, he was a visiting professor of sociology at Harlaxton College in England, and he continues to coordinate Marian University’s Maymester study abroad program at Harlaxton College. Mirola is the author of the new book, Redeeming Time: Protestantism and the Eight-Hour Movement in Chicago, 1886-1912 (University of Illinois Press). He is co-editor of Religion Matters: What Sociology Teaches Us about Religion in our World, (Allyn and Bacon), Religion and Class in America: Culture, History, and Politics, (Brill Publishing) and Sociology of Religion: A Reader (Allyn and Bacon). His research also has published in Sociology of Religion, Social Problems, and Social Science History.
